2020 Les Costières De Pomerols Beauvignac Viognier
Grape Variety & Terroir
This wine comes from sun-drenched vineyards planted on our best terroir – selected for its physical and geographical characteristics – on clay and limestone hillsides called costières (coastal region), only a few miles away from the Etang de Thau, a coastal lagoon that is situated between the port of Sèteand Marseillan.
Vinification & Aging
Grapes picked at night at slightly-advanced maturity (13.5°). Skin contact maceration for several hours.
All manipulations before the fermentation stage performed under inert gas. Pneumatic pressing. Selection of free-run juice. Cold settling for 48 hours at 8°C. Temperature-controlled fermentation (16°C).
Aging in vats on fine lees with restricted stirring of lees. No malolactic fermentation.
The colour is a wonderful brilliant yellow with mother of pearl tints. Intense, seductive notes of ripe fruit, especially apricot, and floral notes with a hint of rose petals. The texture is very harmonious and generous, as well as round and long. Wonderful, opulent bouquet! Best consumed within 2 years.
Food Pairing Suggestions
Perfect as an aperitif, or great with richer dishes like langoustines, smoked or marinated salmon. Great too with guinea fowl in creamy or curry sauce. Serve it also with a broccoli and Roquefort soup or for dessert with a mango and pineapple tarte Tatin.
An extremely versatile wine!
